Falcons waive No. 2 QB Dominique Davis

By The Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH -- The Atlanta Falcons have waived No. 2 quarterback Dominique Davis less than 24 hours after trading for T.J. Yates.<br /> <br /> Davis, an undrafted free agent from East Carolina, was Matt Ryan's primary backup last year. He played in only game - at the end of a blowout loss at Tampa Bay.<br /> <br /> The Falcons traded linebacker Akeem Dent to Houston late Wednesday night for Yates, a former fifth-round pick from North Carolina who started five of 13 career games after joining the Texans in 2011.<br /> <br /> Yates is expected to battle Sean Renfree, a seventh-round pick from Duke last year, for the No. 2 job. Atlanta also has former Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews, signed as an undrafted rookie last month, on the roster.
